with japan maritime self defense force have spotted chinese naval ships in international walters of southwestern japan. the first fleet in the area since japan nationalized three islands in the east china sea last month. defense ministry officials say the seven vessels were navigating between okinawa, two destroyers, rescue ships and supply ship were heading toward the pacific ocean. chinese naval ships passed through the sea lane several times a year to hold exercises. three of them sailed through after drills in june. the region is more than 200 kilometers east of the senkaku island. japan any purchase of the islands reignited dispute over them. analysts say chinese commanders dispatched the fleet to so they intend to maintain a presence in the area. the u.s. navy deployed two nuclear powered air craft carriers in the western pacific. they're navigating within reach of the senkaku island. the uss george washington based in tokyo and the uss john c.steniss are operating together. several warships, vessels equipped with the aegis air defense system are running along side them. a
. it is infuruating. let's talk about residual damage. government defense contractors will have to lay off workers soon if there is no agreement because they are losing federal dollars of the federal programs that are going away. we will see more unemployment. the defense companies will have to notify workers in the next couple of weeks. how important is this? >> it is a temporary drag in the economy. i honestly think of all of the things that will not happen is the chance of getting both rounds of spending cuts, including the massive defense cuts is slight. i think it will be rectified the next few months but it is terrible we have to put the businesses through this until we get to the other side. >> what about housing? it seems to be recovering but still murky. how strong is it, and is it important for the overall economy? >> nothing could be more important than the improvement in home prices. we are getting good signals on home prices. when you get higher home prices of course that pushes up output because builders build more. and pushes up confidence. i think that is important. it causes a wea
an increase in the defense budget. but back then we had planes that couldn't fly for lack of spare parts or pilots. we had navy vessels that couldn't leave harbor because of lack of crew or, again, lack of spare parts. today we're well on our way to a 600-ship navy. we have 543 at present. we have -- our military, the morale is high. i think the people should understand that two-thirds of the defense budget pays for pay and salary, or pay and pension. and then you add to that food and wardrobe, and all the other things, and you only have a small portion going for weapons. but i am determined that if ever our men are called on, they should have the best that we can provide in the manner of tools and weapons. there has been reference to expensive spare parts, hammers costing $500. well, we are the ones who found those. i think we've given the american people back their spirit. i think there's an optimism in the land and a patriotism, and i think that we're in a position once again to heed the words of thomas paine, who said, "we have it in our power to begin the world over again.'' >> than
and going to be deployed. i have cut defense spending, and the n we could do that is because of our fasuccs in wicold war. we nwould have got there if we had gone for the nuclear freeze crowd, never would have got there if we listened do those who wanted to cut defense spending. i think it is important that the united states stay in europe, and guarantee the peace. we simply cannot pull back. now, when anybody has a spending program they want to spend money on at home, they say let's cut money t departme i will accept and have accepted the remmendations of two oven leaders, general colin powell, and secretary dick cheney. they feel that the lels we're operating at and the reductions that i propose are proper, and so i simply do not think we should go back to the isdays and start blaming foreigners. are the sole remaining superpower, and we should be that, and we have a certain disproportionate responsibility, but i would ask the american people to understand that if we make imprudent cuts, if we go too far, we risk the peace. and i don't want to do that. i have seen what it is like to see

about how the white house may be trying to convince defense contractors not to send layoff warnings to workers before next month's election. the office of management and budget sent a memo last week saying the government could cover the cost that companies would face if they run into legal troubles for not properly warning those workers. here's the federal law and what it says. it says that companies with 100 or more workers must provide 60 days notice before mass layoffs or plant closings, or those workers can get up to 60 days of back pay if they are not notified. the republicans are crying foul and eamon javers picks under the story. >> reporter: here's what the omb said in late september -- it is neither necessary or appropriate for federal contractors to provide warn act notice to employees 60 days in advance of the potential sequestration because of the uncertainty about whether sequestration will occur. i've toualked to employees at t white house and omb about this question. their idea is this -- first of all, there's uncertainty about the fiscal cliff itself, whether it is a

are the massive layoffs in the defense sector if congress can't resolve the fiscal cliff. eamon javers is here be more. >> let me bring you the guidance here that the white house is putting out, sending to federal defense contractors in particular, telling them they don't have to issue notices under the so-called warren act, which requires notices to employees in advance of mass layoffs. here's the guidance. they said, it is neither necessary or appropriate for federal contractors to provide w.a.r.n. act notices to employees 60 days in advance of the potential se questionsation because it's uncertain whether sequestration will occur. what the white house is doing here is heading off the possible that defense contractors, particularly in virginia, which is a political state that is very much in play this year, would be getting notices at the beginning of november saying, hey, you might lose your jobs if we go over the fiscal cliff. the administration argues that those notices are not necessary under the w.a.r.n. act because the fiscal cliff doesn't necessarily have to come true. also, if it doe

foreign policy speech days after the debate. over the weekend, the white house was on the defensive after the friday's announcement that the deadly assault on the u.s. consulate in bengahzi was deliberate and organized. peter king of new york called on susan rice to resign as u.s. ambassador to the united nations after she initially claimed the attack on the consulate was part of the spontaneous protest after an anti-islamic video. yesterday paul ryan and john mccain slammed the administration's handling of the deadly attack. >> the response was slow, confused, inconsistent. they first said it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist attack if this was one tragic incident that would be a tragedy in itself. the problem is it's part of a bigger picture that the obama foreign policy is unraveling before our eyes on tv screens. >> i think it interferes with the depiction that the administration is trying to convey that al qaeda is on the wane, everything is fine in the middle east. >> you think it's political? >> how else could you trot out our u.n. am
